Microsoft Corp chairman Bill Gates is on a four-day visit to India and has been talking about the country’s potential and – in answer to questions – his own wealth. He asserted that India has the potential to become a software superpower and promised help to New Delhi in building its communications infrastructure. To be a leader in the digital economy of the 21st century, India must invest in basic infrastructure, education and information technology, Gates declared. He was described as the Wizard of Windows, Sultan of Software and Infotech Czar by newspapers in India, said he does not think much about money and would give his riches away, but not yet. I am not somebody who takes a lot of time spending money and thinking about money…, he said at a news conference in New Delhi, and later confirmed that he planned to give his wealth away. But For quite some time, that won’t be my focus, adding that he had a few decades ahead leading Microsoft before he started giving his money away.
